Gracie's Baptism, Mother's day, Merced's way.

I had a good week this week. We found four new investigators, but the quality of the part member families that we found declined a little bit. We baptized Gracie and had Three investigators and three more non members come to her baptism. Olga, Gracie's mom was there, and she cried the next day at the confirmation. We set a baptismal date with Olga for June. She will be baptized them. Our investigator Deanna came to the baptism, and she is really set on her baptismal date of June 4th. She read up to first Nephi twenty, and read and highlighted the living Christ. She has already made a great transformation in her life. She missed church this week, but both her and her husband Butch are really on fire right now.
Then on the Hmong side, we have Benny and Kenny. They both have been reading the scriptures consistently. Their mom came to church this Sunday and asked us what time their baptism will be on June 3rd. They are solid. They are Miian.
Today we went to Yosemite. We hiked up to a waterfall and then drove down into the valley. It was pretty neat. I think that it was cooler than the Sequoias. It was really nice to go hiking.
This week we went on exchanges with the Assistants. I went with Elder Quinn. We were 3 day companions a long time ago. We worked in the Tower District in Fresno. We set some baptism dates. During the night Elder Quinn got the Stomach flu. We had to take off early the next day to teach the Rae family.

Mothers day and Skyping my family was fun. We kind of do the same routine as missionaries, so we don't have a ton of material to talk about.

I went on exchanges with Elder J Wright this week. We ended up in the less nice areas looking for Less active members.

My teaching this week really had a theme of how faith works in our lives. We are able to experiment with God's word, and then reap the benefits of our faith. But we have to be sincere. The blessings don't always come immediately, so that is where the trial of our faith can come from.
